"Buildings under repair (or not) in Wettinerstraße" Altenburg Local Custom Tip by Nemorino
Altenburg Local Customs: 4 reviews and 9 photos
1. Derelict buildings in Wettinerstraße
2. Another derelict villa across the street
3. For Sale sign on the old villa
The Wettinerstraße was no doubt a very impressive street in former times.
It leads from the railroad station (built in 1876) to the Lindenau Museum (also built 1876), and was lined with imposing villas built by well-to-do local families in the prosperous decades of the 1870s and 1880s.
Today many of these villas seem to be standing empty. Some are slowly being repaired (like the one on the left in the first photo), others not (like the one on the right).
Some of these villas now belong to the city housing authority, which is trying to sell them ("For Sale" sign in the third photo).
